Bibliophile I came from my intense love for books. Conceptually, Bibliophile I would allow a person to carry around tiny contained books at all times. Ironically, I consider these works unwearable gallery pieces.
Each book contains a story I wrote and illustrated dealing with the concept of time. Each piece opens by unscrewing tiny nuts and bolts, freeing the tiny books which can then by enjoyed by employing the magnifying glass.
This series was hand constructed in silver, leather, paper, amethyst and gold.
Bibliophile I was awarded the Circle Craft Award and was exhibited at the Circle Craft Gallery in Vancouver, BC in 2010.
